Words with Friends creators, Paul and David Bettner, have departed Zynga. The duo, which previously worked for Ensemble Studios before it was shuttered by Microsoft, sold their company Newtoy to Zynga for $53.3 million last year. The brothers are the latest on the list of executives to leave the firm in recent months joining: John Schappert, Jeff Karp, Allan Leinwand, Mike Verdu, Nils Puhlmann, Bill Mooney, Brian Birtwistle, and Wilson Kriegel. Thanks, GI International.
